Frustrated border agents want Senate to move on Mayorkas impeachment

Demoralized Border Patrol agents are warning the Democratic-controlled Senate against sabotaging the impeachment trial of Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas.

Five federal law enforcement agents who spoke with the Washington Examiner after the House’s Feb. 13 vote said they have been dragged through the mud since Mayorkas was confirmed by the Senate in February 2021.

However, agents are fearful that Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) will move to dismiss the two articles and kill the trial before it can get underway.

“I want to see our government take action!!” a California agent wrote in a text message when asked about the impeachment effort. “It took them long enough.”

A second agent in California said the official who has led the Department of Homeland Security through the three-year border crisis ought to face accountability.

“Yes, I would like to see a trial,” said the second agent, who has worked 20 years in the Border Patrol. “There are no consequences for smugglers right now. We have so many [people who fail to yield to agents] and smugglers loading [vehicles with illegal immigrants] right on the border.”

The same employee said prosecution rates were incomparable to the number of smuggling cases, meaning few smugglers faced consequences after being arrested.
